Got one today that offered to trade a vacation rental for service. If I could afford a vacation I wouldn't be charging.

And a stuck kitty said so if I don't pay you'll let the cat just die. Basically, yes.

My wife got a call last night from a very irate person because she thought that we should go out to her house for free and splint a bat's wing. You can't make this stuff up.

I tell them if they're willing to pay next month's business advertising, commercial insurance, and gasoline bills I'd gladly come out for free. Usually shuts 'em up.

Like Kasey I am always willing to barter services.

Just waiting for that one person to offer to barter a nice bass boat.

Got a very lucrative offer several years ago on a time share for a very plush lake front resort home. We were bidding a bat job that was going to be a bit expensive for some. But for the value of this home and its location these folks had to have the income to keep it. I didnt go for the trade, I opted for the cash. I dont do the vacation thing or enjoy laying around much doing nothing.

After bidding a job, the old farmer looked at me and wanted to know if I was willing to barter. I always say NO but, for whatever reason, I looked at the guy and asked, "Whaddaya got?" He pointed to a pasture of Black Angus cattle and said, "I'll give you half of one of them." I thought about it for a second and said "sure". When the job was done he told me to go pick one out and asked how I wanted it cut up. About 3 weeks later I picked up my meat, packaged the way I ordered.

One and only time I ever bartered for anything other than cash!

I almost forgot the one years ago when I went to the door I was greeted by a middle aged woman with a skimpy robe on.She asked me to come in and we would talk about her problem and payment terms. Needless to say she had other things in mind in terms of bartering other then a cash exchange. smile

I have to admit it took quite a bit of will power to say no to her proposal.

She appeared to be the real deal for all intents and purposes and a very attractive lady. I was young and single then. I often wonder what "if" every now and then. LOL

An old military saying goes, "You don't wan't to take anything home, you can't hang on the wall".


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

I always get offered the Hav A Heart trap they bought at Home Depot and couldn't catch their problem with. I usually tell them no thanks, get the check and they give it to me anyways. Have about 12 or 13 of them and only bought two of them many years ago


It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Yup, but if ya take a pair of cutters and cut the front of the trap off just behind the door and remove any locking device and springs you have a cheap and easy one way exclusion door.

Can or have you made a chimney trap out of one of the coon sized traps by doing that sort of thing?

Sorry to get off the subject but otherwise I'll forget to ask. Looked in the archives but too many pages have "chimney" and "trap" in subject.
